Chester, Sept. 21 (UP) Fire swept thru two of the large buildings of the Ford Motor Company assem bly plant here today, threatening the entiVe plant with destruction.

Every fire company in Chester and many from adjoining towns and boroughs joined in fighting the flames which were still beyond control at 9:00 a. m. Altho dense smoke was issuing from the buildings at 10:00 a. firemen said the flames had been checked and placed under control. Starting at 5:00 m.

in the paint shop, the blaze raged for nearly an hour while employes and plant firemen attempted to halt it. When firemen arrived the flames had spread thruout the paint shop and to other sections of the plant. A general alarm for city firemen was sounded and when the export shop, where the final touches are given automobiles before they are sent out for shipment, was engulfed in the flames, Fire Chief Berry asked aid from fire companies of adjoining boroughs. Fire companies were sent from Linwood, Marcus Hook, Parkside, Eddystone and Chester township. Unable to save the two buildings, firemen applied themselves in drenching the sides and roofs of other buildings in an effort to check the spread of the flames.

Heavy smoke and intense heat affected firemen forcing some to seek first aid. Two employes of the plant were burned on the hands and face in attempting to check the blaze when it started in the paint shop. They were treated in the Chester Hospital.

Freund is regarded by the men in his craft as the premier cameramin of Europe with attainments in photography rarely equalled in the United States. Freund is best known to motion picture enthusiasts for his woix in "Metropolis," "The Last Laugh," and "Variety." His most recent work was for "Dracula." "Personal Maid" marks his premier Job for Paramount. The camera wizard started motion picture work twenty-six years ago as a projectionist. His development has been coincident with the development of motion picture photography. In nearly every notable picture he has made, Freund has achieved some technical feat never before accomplished.

He possesses an uncanny ability to overcome great obstacles, his co-workers testify. In "Metropolis" and Freund developed a number of new effects which have since been imitated many times. In "Variety," his double and triple exposure effects required three or four weeks of work for perfection. His work for "Personal Maid" attracted attention from scores of motion picture cameramen in the east, all looking for the unusual and the new in his work. An all-aluminum sleeping car is be ing built for use on one of the coun try's mail railroad lines.

R. Lines in Mudkeu Region Chinese Swarm Over Press Train Thinking Other Nations Had Intervened. BY MARTIN SOMMERS (United Press Staff Correspondent) Kowpangtze, Manchuria, Sept. 21 (UP) Japanese troops were in control of all railways and telegraph lines within a hundred miles of Mukden today and Chinese residents are evacuating toward Peiping in panic. A special train carrying newspaper correspondents into the occupied area stopped here today while efforts were made to secure Japanese permission to proceed to Mukden.

Chinese civilians swarmed over the train as soon as it arrived, believing international opposition to the Japanese occupation had arrived. They were expelled with difficulty. On every hand fear of the Japanese was expressed. Troop trains carrying refugees constantly passed our special train; carrying soldiers and their families southward to Peiping. Yesterday we witnessed scenes of wildest confusion all along the route.

Manchurian soldiers, accompanied by their wives and children, filled the southbound trains to capacity and around them their baggage was plied in confusion. Chinese officers estimated 9,000 troops had left Mukden. Are Visited by Moderate Quake $10,000 Damage Caused When Tremor Hits Ohio Town strata supping Is Blamed.

(V) He returns to grip your heart again in FLIGHT with David Manners John Mack Brown Helen Chandler Elliott Nugent Walter Byron LATEST NEWS EVENTS MAJESTIC "The Last Flight" Opened Here Today With Richard Barthelmess and Great Cast. "The Last Flight," known to many as "Nikki and Her War which ran serially in Liberty Magazine, opened here today with Richard Barthelmess in the starring role. Barthelmess plays Carl Lockwood, chief of pretty Nikki's war birds. He is an ex-flier who crashes into the picture from a flaming plane, and proceeds to paint Paris red in an effort to provide thrills equal to those of the days before the Armistice.

Right here it should be said that "The Last Flight" is not a flying picture, but a romance hilarious, though touched with a bit of tragedy of the men who try to adjust themselves to the hum-drum of peace after war. Carl Lockwood meets up with other birds of the same feather, Broncho Bill Talbot, once of Montana, who is a giant ex-gunner; Shep Lambert, also of the flying brotherhood, and Washout, once the best shot of the squadron, but now a nervous wreck and the buddies hit the high spots. Drama enters with, a capital when Nikki, the girl who says she can walk faster in red shoes appears allows herself to be "adopted" and sets with the group on their madcap wanderings. Then there is the outsider, a meddlesome newspaper correspondent from America, who tries to steal Nikki and but that is telling the story. It is enough to say that "The Last Flight" is a romance of unique and semi-tragic beauty.

It is a story you won't be able to forget. Helen Chandler plays the role of Nikki with tantalizing zest. Big Bill Talbot is portrayed by John Mack Brown; Shep Lambert by David Manners, and the Washout by Elliot Nugent.
